Japanese Language Learning Club

Japanese Club is a club that focuses on learning the Japanese language.For Japanese club, you will be expected to memorize kana and kanji and participate in language learning lessons.  You will be required to download Duolingo and Anki apps to help learn Japanese. This will not be a club where we just watch anime, this will be a club where you are expected to put effort in to learn Japanese.  Every meeting we will work on all 4 aspects of language learning (reading, writing, listening and speaking). Sure, we may watch some anime, but it will be with the expectation that we are learning the dialogue and learning Japanese.

If you ask Tabitha nicely she might make a Kahoot.
